    Yup. I'd already dumped it in Productivity. I was trying to get our Portuguese supervisor to tell her Chinese workers to get a move on this morning, but she chickened out.

    That was using iTranslate.

    You don't need to travel when you work with me. It's like the United Nations in the lunchroom. I think we must have over 25 nationalities.

    Transport for London has an excellent free website. Google tfl to get several hits.

    There is an iPad app for sale

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/london-transport/id393119892?mt=8

    The tfl site is essential for London visitors. It contains bus and tube maps, lists of events, advice re delays, good service etc, and a section for the "Boris bikes". Cycles for hire.

    True enough, Gabe. The tfl website, which is free, works extremely well on the iPad and, at a pinch, could be classed as an app ...... OK I'm pushing it!

    There are a number of free apps for navigating London in the App Store. A potentially useful one, which is tied in with the tfl website, is a journey planner.

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/london-travel-planner/id442733941?mt=8

    It works well, although a little clunky!

    A World Atlas and compendium - A free App for now

    The App Store is giving away a world atlas and compendium for free. This is to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the store.

    It took over 1 hour to download the app on a strong wifi connection to my broadband. The App is aimed at raising awareness of our planet and has facts and figures, such as population, name of the capital city and distance from your place, about each country. Countries have icons and figures which link to further information about the item. Tap t speaker icon for the details against each item to be read out aloud.

    The downside is that you don't get info about major cities and tourist attractions. However, the app is packed with facts and features which are educational and should whet your family's appetite for travel.

    I suppose its an electronic equivalent of a DK compendium of the world.

    Have fun :)
